The Insider's Guide To Getting Along With Your Boss

Written by Jay Harris

Understand,repparttar fact that your boss, like yourself, is a human being. Like everyone else, bosses come in all shapes and sizes. Like you, he has ambitions, aspirations, and dreams. Some he will achieve, others he won't. Some bosses are good managers, others bad, but most fall somewhere inrepparttar 148601 middle range.

Unless you're working for a very small company, your boss probably has superiors of his own - that no doubt can, and do, drive him crazy at times. What it boils down to more than anything else is, how well you and your boss can deal withrepparttar 148602 emotional roller coaster of everyday life, and perhaps most importantly, how each of you view your job.

To get along with you boss, or other people for that matter, you have to know how to understand and react to personality traits, get inside your boss's head. In short, you need to develop your human relations skills.

This does not mean becoming a ""yes" man and always siding with your boss no matter how dumb a mistake he makes, or how big a fool he makes of himself. Your boss may appreciate such blind devotion, but unless you are willing to drop anchor and never advance uprepparttar 148603 corporate ladder, you also need to know when to put some distance between you immediate supervisor, andrepparttar 148604 powers that be, because if your boss really goofs-up - you may be shownrepparttar 148605 door atrepparttar 148606 same time your boss is!

Back to getting along withrepparttar 148607 boss, you of course need to get on and stay on his "good side," in short become a team player That means becomingrepparttar 148608 type of an employee everyone would like to have work for them. Someone with a positive outlook, someone who's also friendly, loyal, tolerant, compassionate, understanding, courteous and supportive. Someone who can take, and follow orders. Someone who can getrepparttar 148609 job done. Someone who knows when to speak-up, and when to keep his mouth shut.

Regardless of what you think of your boss,repparttar 148610 first thing you should learn, is his style of supervising. The two extremes of management style, are a boss who enjoys playingrepparttar 148611 part of a military leader, where he, or she barks orders that must be followed exactly without question, orrepparttar 148612 boss who maintains a very low profile, giving employees broad guidelines and then disappearing. Fortunately, most bosses fall somewhere in betweenrepparttar 148613 two extremes, or little actual work would ever get done!

If you haverepparttar 148614 type of personality that demands you must have very specific orders or you're "afraid you won't do it right," you better have a boss who is willing to spendrepparttar 148615 time watching your every step.

Onrepparttar 148616 other hand, if you must be left to your own devices to make things work to getrepparttar 148617 job done and resentrepparttar 148618 boss looking over your shoulder or constantly "picking on you," you better haverepparttar 148619 type of boss who is willing to give you enough room to do your own thing.

Either way, if you are stuck withrepparttar 148620 "wrong kind" of boss it will be a real source of irritation that frequently ends in you not seeing eye to eye with your supervisor.

If you can't change, or at least try, you would be better off finding employment elsewhere - becauserepparttar 148621 boss isn't going to change his management style to please you!

It also pays dividends to learn what your boss likes and dislikes, and then adapt what you do to suit his personality and management style. All bosses expect their workers to know how to do their job, and to get it do it correctly, and on time, but problems are bound to come up in any business. One thing that can really "set off" your boss is not handling problems like "he thinks" they should be handled.
